A truly unique peninsula event, the Aug. 7 “Ride the Hurricane” is a recreational ride starting from either the Heart O’ The Hills Campground or from the Visitor Center at the base of Hurricane Ridge Road to the top of Hurricane Ridge and back down, without any vehicle traffic.
The event begins at 7 a.m. and is scheduled to finish by noon. Riders can start at any time that morning but need to be headed down the ridge road by 11:30 a.m.
Participation is limited to 500 riders.
Registration is $35 and includes a photo from Hurricane Ridge, which will be e-mailed to the rider, a custom Ride The Hurricane Shirt, and refreshments at the summit house.
Two dollars from every registration will be donated to the Olympic National Park Fund to help keep Hurricane Ridge open during the winter months.
The event will provide several aid stations along the route with water available and restrooms.
Supporting sponsors are Olympic Medical Center and Ruddell Auto Mall.
